Event Information

Join us in celebrating queer identities as we screen four outstanding short films from queer filmmakers. Featuring a range of genres including documentary, drama, and sci-fi, this program provides new perspectives… and sometimes even takes you out of this world! 

These works are timely and relevant, discussing important issues in creative ways. In this program: a loving mother goes off in search of her missing daughter and uncovers unexpected secrets; an alien comes to earth in search of her first kiss during a pandemic; a nonbinary documentary filmmaker reveals a family history and a search for acceptance; a young girl attempts to navigate her blossoming sexuality while getting ready for a party with friends.

Sample a spectrum of queer creativity in our queer short film program!

Ni Aquí/Ni Allá is a personal documentary that centers a conversation between filmmaker Ley Comas and their mother about their gender identity.

Growing up, in the Dominican Republic, Ley only witnessed trans people portrayed as evil characters, punchlines in movies and TV shows, or outcasts and victims. At home, anything that went against God’s word was an abomination. This documentary follows Ley´s physical and psychological journey to become themself, while struggling to find a middle ground with their family.
